Third Time HAS To Be The Charm!

It's official!!  REMISSION!!!  

I kind of just want to leave my post as just that one line... It feels so wonderful, yet carries such mixed emotions with it... Being the third time I've heard that word, meaning I'm moving forward with a bone marrow transplant, still having who knows how many chemo sessions coming up to mess with any summer plans we might have had... 

I am of course feeling relief and joy too, so happy to SEE that scan come back clear, and know the chemo has been working, and let's not forget the loads of praying too!  There's still so much work to go through before I'm done with this, but this is the major milestone I've needed to move forward.  We are ready for the next step.  

Thank you for ALL the love and support, I feel it every day, and am constantly overwhelmed with gratitude!  Love to you all!

  1. YAY Tessa! Your post made me cry tears of joy! I'm so happy for you and your sweet family! I wonder if you'll ever know the impact you've made in people's lives because of your experience. I hope after everything is said and done you can enjoy some much deserved peace with your kiddies and your husband.

  7. You are such an inspiration to me. I think about you a lot and I will never forget your history class and the one on one talks we use to have. I look up to you and I have no idea how you can be as strong as you are. If you are ever in Logan get a hold of me and we can get together and go to lunch or something I moved out and am now living in an apartment. I hope to see you soon. My prayers are with you.
